that the massachusetts connector, who is run by the same guy who was running connecticut's exchange in the first month only so 0.3% of total enrollment sign-up. so, i have confident that the rocket will fly off the shelves once people can get into the website -- this product will fly off of the sale -- shelves once people can get into the website because what we have seen in connecticut and also i am optimistic that once his site is up it will be up in time for the largest number of people to inoll, because what you said response to senator bennet's questions, the reality is that the vast majority of people are going to be looking for coverage as the enrollment date draws near. so, i guess that is the frame of my question to you. from the experience of people who have been able to access these exchanges -- either at the national level or state level -- what do we know about the quality of the product and, two, what do we know about the timing of when people actually sign up for plans like this? we have the massachusetts experience, the experience of medicare part d. to the extent your timeline plays o
always assumed that, based on massachusetts' experience, the initial sign up will be very slow. and in fact, no payments have to be made until december 15 for coverage on january 1. so, while we don't like the problems we had in october and fixing it in november, we do not think it will impact the timeline because we have a six- month enrollment, so we still have four months left and individuals can apply up until march. >> thank you. thank you, mr. chairman. >> now to senator robert. -- senator roberts. senator robert? >> thank you, mr. chairman. 'm going to focus, if i can, on the concerns raised by senator isakson, alexander, and the chairman, on security and privacy. we have a law, the federal information security management .ct, his mother --fisma everything has to have an acronym. it requires each agency to a point a chief security officer to ensure americans private financial and identifying information is protected. and that is a big issue. secretary civilians revealed last week exchanges operating on temporary authority to operate. there is a 2012 12 memo from zyonts,
. the massachusetts general attorney did a large study a number of years ago and a lot of information was disclosed to the massachusetts ag that claims claim secret protection. they found it was against public policy to in light of trade secrets considerations and protections that have been claimed for that information. they held it was in the public interest to disclose the information they found anyway. so i think that you're exactly right. when we think about consumers in the market and the impact that this is having on them, the public policy is going to sway in the other direction. as we start to see more aco's develops and more bundle care and providers have a larger burden of determining -- we only have a certain amount of a patient and we have to make referrals to different providers. it's going to be important to how much it costs so they can keep their own cost down when they're thinking about making referrals. it's not going to be just patient that needs this information, but it's vital for the provider to make that decision going forward. there's a number of different ways of add
that the senator from the commonwealth of massachusetts is on the floor. i would inquire through the chair how long she is seeking to speak. we are about to proceed to the consideration of the amendment that has been filed by senator portman and cosponsored by senator ayotte, senator heller and senator mccain. and this is a rather complicated parliamentary situation. and then there's going to be a debate. if the senator from massachusetts is going to speak very briefly, i would withhold. if she's going to speak at length, then since we have members on their way, i would proceed. if we could inquire through the chair. mrs. warren: i would tell the senior senator from maine, my plan had been to speak for less than 10 minutes, but if that's not -- if that doesn't work, i certainly will yield to the senator from maine and do what she requests -- or whatever she needs here. ms. collins: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from maine. ms. collins: i would ask unanimous consent that the senator from massachusetts be permitted to speak for no longer than 10 minutes, and if it were a little
unaffordable. the state of massachusetts is good to look at. the agency who buys for state employees are less expensive because they use an alternative network which means the lower networks in the market. as network design changes occur, i think we can see things really change a lot as more competition gets introduced that way. >> last question and i should have asked this of professor midic, we think about a state exchange here in california, what do you think the impact is going to be in terms of our topic about costs and i think as we went through the cpmc discussions, the only thing we agree on is everyone doesn't know what's going to happen. what do you think about it? >> in california you have a proactive value purchaser of health care. it can have a significant impact on in this market in terms of what it's going to demand of the participating health plan and the prices they have and the information they provide to their enrolled patients around helping and supporting them to make more economical decisions. the only way they're going to be successful is if they do that. there's goi

committee yesterday about massachusetts' experience. massachusetts is ahead of us in all of this. they have done the same thing with what we like to call romney care. so they said it was the same thing. people usually tend not to sign up until the last minute. and nobody is due until -- nothing is available even until january 1st. there's no penalty until march 1st, which is months away. and if you're a small business coming in, you don't have to come until your existing policy rolls over, which could be a year from now. so i think we have got to be a little patient with the, you know, first two minutes of the game outcomes and predicting what the final score is going to be. >> well, obama care is going to be a big story in 2014. is there any parallel by the way it was handled by terry mcauliffe in virginia and the way the democrats and the mid terms should handle it in 2014? he didn't run away from it and his opponent was saying it was a referendum. the election was a referendum on obama care. how do you break that down, and what do you see for 2014? >> you know, it's hard for me to give a

of a harborer of the country than massachusetts where mitt romney was governor. the point is resonant it's not a republican state. he doesn't have to worry about the same type of conservative base issues he'd find in a republican primary. but that's not his pitch. his pitch is do you want to win the white house or not? and the truth of the matter is his argument, i think, is there is an opening in the republican party for that. there are a lot of conservatives who are going to line up and compete for conservative votes. whether it's ted cruz or rand paul. but i do think that there will be a slot for a chris christie type. he did talk about that this -- in our interview today he said i think there are some republicans that are more interested in winning the argument than they are in winning an election, anderson. >> i think one of the things also about chris christie looking ahead to the base is, it wasn't just mitt romney. it was also bob dole at the end of his second term. it was also george w. bush that the tea party said, these guys, we've tried too many times. but in the end it's abo

states includes new jersey, massachusetts, what voters is a decided today offers an intryinging look at the parts. governor races in new jersey and virginia, and six states have more than 30 battle measures ranging from a hike in the minimum wage, new taxes on the sale of marijuana, and 200 million bond issue to save the houston astro dome, and there are cities electing mayors like atlanta, detroit, houston and new york. let's begin with the governor races, new jersey governor chris christie said he's not concerned about lack of support from the state's tea party republicans, and from the looks of the polls he has no reason to be. christie is expected to win in a landslide over democrat barbara bono. we just heard that the associated press has just called the race for governor chris christie in the state of new jersey. but it's been a different story in virginia why terry mcauliffe faced off against a conservative opponentopponent ken cuccine ll. mmcmcauliffe leads with a very small lead. let's go to new jersey and john terrett is there with the latest news. >> reporter: as you cross

nation , a junior senator from massachusetts spoke at a college in baltimore. the young senator, named john kennedy, said -- let us not despair the act. let us not seek the republican answer or the democratic answer, but the right answer. let us not seek to fix the blame for the past, let us accept our own responsibility for the future. ". more than 55 years later, jfk's advice reigns true. it is important to remember now as we implement the affordable care act. five weeks ago the end -- the administration launched www.c- -- launched it was to be the premier website for the affordable care act. needless to say, it has been a rocky rollout. problems have plagued the let me say right off the bat that this is unacceptable. it has been disappointing to your members of the say that they did not see the problems coming. secretary sibelius, last time you came before this committee i used to year -- two words about my worryrds to relate over the law's implementation. make no mistake, i believe in this law. i spent two years of my life working on the affordable care act
in massachusetts we saved people's lives. >> i am talking about the greater good. i understand there is suffering. if there is any way that i can personallial alleviate it i will. i give beaucoup money to organizations to try to help. a law is being mandated imposed on a population clear, number one and functional, number two. and neither of those things are happening, doctor. >> but bill tough remember this law is not affecting the vast majority of the population. that's what's getting lost is the fact that the vast majority of americans who get insurance from their employer or government are not affected by this. >> you don't know that. the law is only 6 weeks old. we don't know that yet. but the suffering being caused by the law is much more intense than the help it is going to give. you and i have a gentlemen's disagreement. that's just what we have. now, 400,000 dollars tax payer money given to you. you earned it. i am sure that you spent a lot of time on this. but now you are being criticized for it. so i was technical consultant to the department of health and human services. basically i h

is but it is by no means new york pitch no means, massachusetts. by no means even another state. it is still a relatively conservative state. but it is moving to the center. opinion of the president's health care law. 51%. so a majority of the voters today opposed the president's health care law. if the exit polls hold up, a democrat will win the governor's race even though they say they oppose obama care. let's move it over again. this is not a state clamoring for more government but it is a divide. government should do more. 46% say government should do more but a majority, 51% said the government is doing too much biffle no mean big a liberal state. but here's the lesson. if these polls hold up. if terry mcauliffe wins the race, this will be the conversation. the republican you just mentioned was identified with the tea party. also identified with some very conservative views on social issues. 52% of the voters today in the state of virginia said he was too conservative. the argument will be, did republicans nominate someone too far to the right? and among those who said he was too conservative, look

patrick, the governor of massachusetts blaming the victims of obama care, blaming people who had insurance who have now lost it, blaming cancer patients because of the failures of their own law. the president needs to quit doubling down on the dishonesty and come forth and tell the american people that he misled them. he intentionally misled the american people and what he told them just wasn't true. >> all right, senator barasso, we're out of time. we'll have to leave it there. thank you so much for your time this afternoon. >> thanks for having me. >> well, all eyes were on the races in new jersey and virginia, but there were many other headlines and quite a few firsts from election night. in boston, the people of bean town elected state representative marty walsh to replace the city's longest serving mayor. voters in detroit elected the city's first white mayor in four decades. mike duggan will be tasked with bringing the motor city back from the financial brink. and new york city will have its first democratic mayor in two decades. earlier today, he met with michael bloomberg, who held
than the small numbers expected, don't matter that much in the long run. in massachusetts, young people were among the last to sign up because the initial wave of people are going to be those who need it most urgently. until those young people start lining up later in the game, we need to not turn them off of the system. all of the pundits who are exploiting this for political gain need to make sure they understand the system will be up and running and you do need to sign up for your sake so we don't have uninsured young people and so we're not shouldering the burden of emergency care for all those people. >> kathleen, what do you make of all this? there are skeptics. there are always going to be skeptics when there are big pieces of legislation. this legislation should not be without its skepticism given how it's been rolled out. >> absolutely. i have a couple things to say in response to your point, the young people signing up. the way to push that is to appeal to parents. parents will ultimately have to foot the bill if their kid gets hurt or has some catastrophic event. >> and paren

in massachusetts, which is probably the most instructive one, only 0.3% of the people who ultimately enrolled did so in the first month. the vast majority did it right before the deadline and most of the young people did it before the deadline. i just don't want to panic when we're only 30 days, 40 days into enrollment. we've got plenty of time for this thing to work and ultimately given the fact that we know it's an affordable product, especially for young people to have subsidies, they're going to end up signing up. i think a lot of this is just a political cloud created by republicans who never wanted this thing to work in the first place. in the end, we've got a product that sells. we know that in connecticut. >> do you have a sense of when, depending on what the numbers are, you'll either panic or breathe a sigh of relief and say, see, it is working. >> i think we're not there yet. we need to get well into next year as we start to look at the numbers as we come towards march before any of us have a sense of whether the website has had a significant hangover. but the fact is, is that i think
the rest of the story. the rest of the story is that the governor of massachusetts estimated that only 123 consumers signed up in the first month but eventually tens of thousands did and now today the state has nearly universal coverage. they went from one in four ople having insurance to uninsured being one in four to 2340u being one in ten. we know the results so to me it's a reminder of what our goal was which is to address double digit increases in insurance rates were preventing people from getting insurance coverage. so to me the issues of the website and software since it's part of a background i've had before, to me it's about writing code and getting things tested and it's very frustrating for sure. in my mind it nowhere resembles something like the blowout preventers failing and oil gushing into the gulf and us struggling for months and months to get a scientific way to clean up that resource. in this case it's about just getting the code right and making it work and function. in that case, governor romney asked for and got a three-month delay. i know the chairman asked you to co

you about cost portion. in massachusetts the model. health care costs have not come down. they pay the most per person in the country on health care. in the united states we go forward with obamacare. they don't have young people signing up. they are takeing a $95 penalty as opposed to paying higher premiums. that create what is they call a death spiral. older, less healthy folks signing up but not supported by younger, healthy folk paying into the system. potentially it collapses. what do you do? >> you described it perfectly. this is what we talked about when debating the bill. we're seeing it happen now. those who are younger are not just going to pay all these higher costs for no benefit. those who are older are moving into a system that is being undercut by the failure of the economics of the plan and the death spiral is exactly what we are seeing start right now. although the administration points to a lot of individual stories about people who are able to get health care, and there are people who are able to get health care with the exchange subsidies, the fact is that the i
the list of doctors and medical facilities that will take my insurance is limited, and my massachusetts doctors are not on the list. the one closest to me, portsmouth hospital, is not on the list. kathleen in new castle wrote the exchange choice will not allow me to use my docks including -- docs including primary care who is affiliated with portsmouth hospital. all oncology doctors are in boston, not covered. margaret in stafford wrote me she currently goes to frisbee memorial hospital which is not part of the exchange. she described the impact this way. i would no longer be able to go to frisbee memorial hospital which is four miles away. i could no longer see the gynecologist whom i trust. i could no longer use the surgeon who saved my life when emergency sucialg was required. -- surgery was required. i could no longer visit the same internist. if i were to develop heart problems, i could no longer go to portsmouth regional hospital. gregory in rochester said that his primary care physician is at frisbee. he said that means he'll have to go to another hospital. and what he told me, h
enda. according to "the washington post," public support ranges from a high of 81% in massachusetts to a low of 63% in mississippi. so it's clear that this support cuts across party affiliation and gender -- generational gaps. whether you're a democrat, a republican, an independent, whether you're libertarian, whether you are young or old, americans overwhelmingly support this bill. the american people are basically giving us a message. this is a no-brainer. we shouldn't have to fight about it. we should just vote for it. that's why i was just so dismayed to read that house speaker boehner said that he would not support enda, and his reason was it will increase litigation. now, does the speaker really think that lgbt americans who have families to support and bills to pay would rather pursue frivolous lawsuits than earn their pay in a workplace free of harassment and discrimination? and here's what's really, i think, disingenuous about that. republicans do not suggest that all the other groups covered by the civil rights act are filing frivolous lawsuits. in other words, all the res

was here to see them. seshe and the senator from massachusetts and i all were at the hearing this morning where the head of the center for medicaid and medicare services talked about the health care law. i thought the senator from alaska was especially cogent in pointing out the difficulties and the differences between those who live in alaska and their inability to connect to the services in the new health care law. if i remember correctly, she said only three have been able to enroll, and she pointed out the differences in time. i'd like to spend a few minutes reflecting on what happened this morning and what i said to the administration's witness. i began by telling her a story, a story about 16,000 tennesseans who have insurance through something called cover tennessee, a low-cost coverage state program. obamacare is canceling their policies, those 16,000 policies. cover tennessee apparently is an example of what the president has called "bad apples," an insurance plan that washington has decided isn't good enough for you. i recently heard from one of those tennesseans whose policy wi
